city that i got to work on with the city administrator. we need to take care of the infrastructure in many ways and we are loving our parks and why we want this great investment to continue and this is another small yet important addition. we will have $35 million more of that with the connection with the port and the next bond so it serves as a great example how we use the park bonds to of benefit of all of our users and residents and especially because we want our southeast sector to continue evolving in a positive way for everybody. it has been a trial for many of the residents here for many years because of the leadership of the different agencies working together with environmental advocates to make sure we strike that right balance we can have the spaces used for the different use and it is enjoyment of the environment at the same time for the residents. thank you for being here with this announcement. we get four things out of this. a dog run, heron's head park with the landscape and wonderful access to it. we have the literacy for justice modernization here and of course we ha

organization our city. first a technical point on all of this. i was under the impression and check with dhr on this that the executive position still exists but filled on an interim basis. maybe i am wrong on that but good to make sure you're correct on that from the staff's perspective. i agree bringing it back in house because the next year is going to be really big for clean power sf and some other things and we need somebody that can be available five days a week, 50 weeks a year. i mean that's really going to be important, but the main thing i want to focus on is that the advocates for clean power sf have had some concerns with the way that lafco -- when we originally set set up lafco to work on clean power sf and especially get at the beginning of 2007 and what we needed from lafco and i believe the intention we needed somebody on task for clean power sf itself that could approach the sf puc on many occasions the sf puc wasn't thinking outside of the box on this to put it politely, and we need someone, and i think we will need someone well versed in local distributive generation,

has to be the case with transportation project we work on in the city. transportation money is limited and we have to look at the utility of the project in relation to the land use that's adjacent and see if there's a way to capture it it. the other side of it is, this potential oakdale cal train station is too important. it's too good of an opportunity separated transit access for folks around that station to downtown and to the airport in places south of valencia and somehow include it because of the bridge work. that's the origin of this whole effort. it's not my favorite sport to close city streets. this is a way that you can have your cake and eat it. we can have the connector road, but we can have this potentially fabulous connection from that part of town into downtown where employment is going at the same time. in the process perhaps give the poc a more useable piece of land where currently we have industrial uses that are -- i would surmise based on highest use of that space and a street that's definitely under utilized. >> great, thank you. commissioner cohen? >> than

the city i am fond of saying. it's visionary. you heard about that from the mayor already and part of it is san francisco moving forward in a way that other cities just don't do. first and foremost other cities do not pass general obligation bonds of this type for a park and none for waterfront parks so we are already ahead of game that way, and we are proud of the generosity of the electoral for supporting that vision. secondly we don't have many parks and in san francisco there are a couple of open spaces but not in the middle much heavy industry use. this is a working port. work is going on as we speak but it's a place for habitat and a place for our own restoration so it makes it absolutely wonderful for that and you can get here by almost every mode. i would like to say you could take the train and the historic train and i encourage you to ride your bikes and bring your dog. this is the first dog sanctioned area and we're proud of that and i want to say thank you to all the people that made it happen and as mayor lee alluded to it's a lot of people and byron and the rest of the c
